Fuerteventura proved the perfect location for Summer ’16 sun worshiping, but did it have the food to match? A brief stroll around Caleta de Fuste revealed a swarm of curry houses, some sitting below Hong Kong diners creating intertwined kitchen scents that lingered like lost ghosts. We are huge fans of curry, however, after a four hour flight south of the UK to a remote island infused with the culinary stylist of Spain and surrounded by the rich seas of the North Atlantic, India felt a long way away.
We were however lucky enough to stumble upon Restaurante Volcano. A speedily delivered menu and prompt drinks order assured us that we were in safe hands, a feeling further enhanced as we read through exquisite sounding dishes while our stomachs were simultaneously massaged by welcoming scents from surrounding tables.
To start, we opted for the Pan Cristal Con Jamón Iberico in hope of some local flavors. A simple dish that showcased the quality of local ingredients available on the island.
For mains we opted for the Cuttlefish and Squid Inked Black Rice, a fantastic dish with Michelin qualities and among the best food we had on the whole trip.
A literally cracking chocolate dessert took us back to the Wonka bars sold in the UK in our school days with a cracking sub EUR80 bill to match for the evening. Definitely a place to check out without a plate of chips in sight!
